Julija, what a remarkable review. Congratulations!

Of the publishing industry’s four major trade (the other three includeKirkus, Booklist, and Library Journal) magazines, Adelle Waldman writes at Slate that “Publishers Weekly, or PW, is the biggie—it plays Coke to Kirkus‘ Pepsi.” A “'starred’ review in PW still increases a book’s chance of getting media coverage and showi... These also determine which books Amazon promotes. A starred review indicates a book of outstanding quality.

I even put together a blog trailer for Lofty Ambitions: http://loftyambitions.wordpress.com/2012/03/16/lofty-ambitions-blog....

Any advice on best practices for platform development? What works in the industry's eyes? New things I might try (as if I have any more time)?

not sure why they don't show that, Shawn. They also lump all religious together.

Interesting, Meg. I didn't see YA paperback on the chart just hardcover.
